Jean Tinguely grew up in Basel, and as a result you can come across his sculptures all across the city, with a dedicated museum in the east of the city. It was my standout museum of the many I visited.
The museum is a perfect stop before a short walk to the river and a swim down the Rhine.
The museum has a great collection of exhibits, many of them interactive. Big buttons adorn the floor letting you animate them in unexpected ways. I also have to give great credit to the staff - who were super friendly and encouraged people to explore / take photos / point out things they’d miss. It must be quite a zoo when school kids are visiting.

Museum Tinguely had a temporary exhibit by Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger. A mix of hallucinogenic displays and interactive experiences. It reminded me of some of the weirder bits of Secret Cinema.
